I initially decided to hire a doula so my husband and I would have some extra support during the labour process with our first child. We met Jen at a Meet Your Doula event, and I am so glad that we did.
Jen was great during the lead up to the birth and made us feel like we were her absolute first priority, despite having other large events going on in her life at the time.
Our birth did not go according to plan at all, and Jen was so great at rolling with the changes and helping me come up with other options. I had so many tubes and wires attached to me that movement was really hard and Jen had a bunch of options and ideas to help make me as comfortable as possible.
Something I really appreciated about Jen was every time a new nurse came on shift, Jen made sure the nurse saw my list of birth preferences and knew what I was hoping for.
After the birth, I ended up needing to go for several unexpected procedures and she stayed with my husband and little baby, and only left once she knew I was okay.
The letter she wrote my son was so beautiful. Jen was a huge part of our story of becoming new parents, and I will be forever grateful that she was there.
Jennifer is wonderful! I am so glad she helped me through the birth.
It was my first child, and I had no idea what to expect. It didnt go at all as planned, it was a long and not so easy of a labour. But Jennifer's presence was SO very calming. Not just during labour, but also after! When everybody was quite exhausted, she still stayed with me hours after the birth!
So glad I had a doula at my birth, especially so that it was Jennifer.
I most definitely recommend her services to everybody!
I hired Jen for my second pregnancy and I am so glad I did! My first labour went horribly and I was pretty traumatized by it. Jen helped me move past it and I was able to have a very successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) because of her! Jen is respectful of any birth preferences and provides helpful insight if the preferences end up changing mid labour. She not only helped me to relax during my labour hours but also provided ideas and techniques for my husband to help support me when I needed him to. She understood what I wanted to happen going in and made sure I was aware of all my options when things needed to change and doctors suggested intervention. A little bonus was that she took notes during my labour experience and typed out a letter to my baby about how things went. It's very sweet!
I highly recommend hiring Jen as your doula! Whether it be your first, second or sixth pregnancy she is amazing to work with!
